Giving the garden a drink.

I run this system for 12 hours once a week. This is the first run for this season. We just got the water in the pipes.

The water comes from this reservoir. It goes in a canal then downstream, into a pipe. It is gravity fed.

Alright Jal that is a good sign the season is about to take off. Can't wait to see what bounty you come up with this year. :D

Wish I could send you all some of my rain. We were woke up this morning again with tornado sirens and walls of rain. :cry: Looking at a repeat tomorrow morning as well. :x

Whenever I see pictures of your garden and the backdrop, I'm reminded to buy a lottery ticket.
Just breath-taking.

My garden is still quite small, however it should take off now if we get some warmer weather. I think the corn doubled in size today. I have been getting lots of green onions, radishes, spinach and lettuce.
